The Atari Asteroids game requires certain maintenance to keep it in good working order. Clean, properly maintained games attract players and earn more profits.
The most important maintenance item is running the self-test every time you collect money from the cash box. Just looking at a game will not tell you if LED switches or leaf switches are broken or if LEDs have burned out. The self-test will inform you of any of these possible problems.
